SUPERMODEL Naomi Campbell has shared a rare glimpse of her baby daughter after welcoming the tot in secret in May.
Her baby girl’s face was hidden but the two-month-old wore a colourful Versace romper in the sweet post.
Naomi wrote: “I love you Gianni.”
The post came last night on the 24th anniversary of Gianni’s cold-blooded murder on the marble steps of his home in Miami.
Naomi stunned even her closest pals when she revealed that she had become a mum by posting a snap of her cradling a newborn’s feet.
She told her 10.4million Instagram followers: “A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother. So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life.
“There are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you my angel. There is no greater love.”
Naomi had spoken for several years of her desire to have a baby and once said “science” can help her to have one at any age.
London-born Naomi is believed to have told only a select few family members and friends of her motherhood.
She kept the news hidden from her team until just half an hour before the announcement.
A friend told The Sun: “This is typical Naomi. She loves to surprise people and keep them on their toes. It is really fantastic and happy news.
“At a time when everything feels so negative in the showbiz world, she hopes this will help lift some spirits.”
She has spoken several times in the past about how she hoped to become a mother with or without a partner.
She said in 2014: “I do want to have children, whether I have a man or not. I will have it on my own.”
Three years later Naomi said: “I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.”
But in 2019 she revealed she felt comfortable enough with her “chosen family”, which includes her protege, South Sudanese model Adut Akech, 21.
Asked if she felt ready for children, she said: “Not yet? I’ll see what the universe brings me. For now, what the universe has delivered is very much in the spirit of a ‘chosen family’.”
Surrogacy has become hugely popular in the US. Robbie Williams, 47, and Ayda Field, 42, used one to have their third and fourth children, daughter Colette, two, and son Beau, one.
Kim Kardashian, 40, and Kanye West, 44, also had two of their children Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, via a surrogate following complications during her first two pregnancies.
